If the SAGs are good for one thing it's making the Emmys look cutting edge. And being morons. Good for CK and Poehler though.
I can't help that. But please don't spread around that I somehow don't like or actually dislike Streep. It's not my issue that Lange, as an actress, and perhaps her fan(s), make you insecure about your own preferences. Ugh, so tired of this vitriol and getting ready for something good for all you mofos.
Both Lange and Streep have an uncanny ability to rise high above the material given to them. Not so easy being an actress of 60plus these days. The confidence and authority that both of these women project is awe-inspiring. No need to choose sides. The Frances-Sophie's Choice contest was years ago. I would imagine that neither of them give it much thought and look to the future. Both of these women have moved on and in an industry filled with land mines for actresses of their age, each has blossomed. Yes, American Horror Story is a Ryan Murphy trifle on one hand but the acting is first rate among all ensemble members. Lange is probably doing the best work of her career and no need to belittle this fact. A shame that the work of all involved was overlooked by SAG.
Lange's monologue about her mother and the squirrel deserves every award that could possibly be given

don't see why you guys are surprised about the Comedy Ensemble nods. The Office and Glee have EXCEPTIONALLY LARGE credited casts. And everyone loves Mayim Bialik!
P.P.P.S. On why Lange should win (and other shtuff), if the Danes-Moore duo don't win....
Lange won last year. There's no way Claire Danes doesn't take this and hell if by some miracle she doesn't, I'd almost argue Maggie Smith might take it, since she's nominated several times this year and has never won a SAG.
Love these nominations:

BOBBY CANNAVALE / Dr. Mike Cruz
Will you join the Geography Club?
Does anyone know why Michael Shannon wasn't nominated with the rest of the cast for Boardwalk Empire?
Cranston's 1st Sag or Globe, and not Lewis. I suspect Argo pushed him over the edge.
Instead of Boardwalk's 3rd, or a show where one woman carries everyone else, a true drama ensemble wins.
Instead of White's 3rd, Fey breaks the record for her category and matches Margulies's record for individual Sags for a woman.
